NEW CHALLENGE: How do you think the Brexit process will end?

Thus far, Brexit is not going according to plan. The House of Commons has rejected the current draft Withdrawal Agreement by a majority of 230 votes. We want to know how YOU think the Brexit process will end.

* Do you think the UK will exit with a deal (albeit perhaps with some revisions to the existing Withdrawal Agreement) as planned on 29 March 2019?

*Are you expecting (and preparing) for a "No Deal" exit?

*Do you think article 50 will be extended, and if so for how long?

*Do you think (hope? fear?) Brexit won't happen at all (and the UK will remain a member of the EU), perhaps as a result of a general election or a second "people's vote" referendum?

I would love to see the UK hold European Parliament elections in May. If the government is going to ignore calls for a people's vote, it would be interesting to see how the public votes in these elections. Would the candidates be extremely polarised between pro-EU and anti-EU views? Would the turnout be much higher than usual? How much support has  the British pro-European movement gained and would it be reflected in the results of these elections? I think these elections could be used as a...

We need to have indicative votes in parliament to see what would actually command a majority. I think a few more MPs may swing behind May's deal, especially after the people's vote march and petition to revoke article 50, but it's still in doubt whether it will pass. Without a clear idea of what actually could be passed in parliament, how can we move forward?

The revoke article 50 petition can be signed by EITHER British Citizens OR UK residents. That means that all those EU nationals (and other nationals) who are resident in the UK and couldn't vote in the referendum can make their voices heard now by signing the petition if they want to. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/241584 I had no idea that petitions were more inclusive than elections....

I am wondering what everyone thinks about the revoke article 50 petition that is getting a lot of discussion in the media? It says: The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is 'the will of the people'. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People's Vote may not happen - so vote now. I am not sure how much of a difference it will make BUT I did notice that there is no age limit specified on the petition. The...

The deadline can be extended until the 1st of July, even without elections. I believe this will not change anything, but only take May's last weapon away: the deadline. Why did the EU agree to this you think?

With another people's vote march scheduled for the 23rd, do you think it will have any impact on the process? Considering the turnout was so massive at the last march, if this one can match the first one it will be another great display of pro-Europeanism. The people's vote campaign had a lot of momentum after the first march, then this momentum appeared to fade away for a while. Do you think this march will reinvigorate the campaign, or is it too late now?

What would the second referendum question look like? I believe the best option is to call for a decision on either accepting the original negotiated deal or remain, the idea of a no-deal Brexit is as such off the table. Do you think this is possible?

Is an extension credible from the EU's side? The EU has already set out that the main extensions it is ready to give are with regards to the the UK adapting to the Withdrawal Agreement, or when there are general elections or a second referendum. There are no provisions regarding delaying the process for negotating amendments to the deal (https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/explainers/article-50-options ). So what are the chances of the EU 27 agreeing a delay to negotiate an amended...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47336501  With three cabinet ministers suggesting that Brexit should be delayed if the deal is voted down again by parliament, perhaps we are seeing some politicians start to come to their senses about the disastrous impact of a no deal. The threat of leaving without a deal is becoming more and more likely, but maybe their statements will bring some pressure and the political momentum needed to prevent it. It's relieving to finally hear some...

The political impact of postponing article 50 is too large so I believe that May's original deal will go through, with the backstop set as it is.
